There’s a beautiful Orslow indigo denim jacket on Blue Owl on sale now. I’m very tempted, but I’m still a bit stuck on what I’d wear it with. Double indigo looks too metal band for me and I don’t wear chinos on the weekend.

Not a fan at all. Don't like the Vshaped stitching from the front pockets downward, also the don't like the coloraway.

Lol . I am going through lint rollers. Any application I can use to prevent lint from adhering in the first place? I got two cats which doesn't help either

Wouldn’t advise using a pumice stone on raw denim or anti static dryer sheets (you’d have to wash and dry every two or three wears) - I don’t think you’ve got any other option.

Yea he does. Get rid of the fucking cats.
A grown man, allegedly straight, keeping cats. This is what’s wrong with the world these days.

What kind of manly man keeps cats?
Among the most pointless pets on earth, second only to taking a bird and putting it in a cage or clipping its wings so it can’t fly away.

They were bought at Fake Alpha in Tokyo, and cost just under £300. Not cheap, but still towards the bottom end of prices for vintage 501s

It always amazes me that people who would never dream of paying for factory-made wear-and-tear on items such as jeans and watches, will deliberately pay large sums of money for someone else's wear-and-tear on jeans and watches.

If it's not your wear-and-tear, or from someone close to you that you know, then what is the substantive difference? If you don't know the person who used to own the item, don't know its history, don't know where it was worn and what the person was doing while wearing the item, then how does it actually matter if it was "natural" wear-and-tear, or whether it was factory-induced?

I know that people like to blather on about "authenticity" and so on, but it really seems like a giant intellectual wank to me. However, I'm very happy to hear a different point of view.

Haven’t seen them in a while but Fender used to make guitars all scratched up and faded. Some were supposedly copied off well known players’ - I seem to remember Joe Strummer’s green Tele, Andy Summers’ sunburst Tele, EVH’s red and white Strat, SRV’s brown Strat etc. Ridiculous really but there’s one born every minute.

New CianoFarmer jeans arrived this week. I already have a pair in the Miner fit in size 32 which I love, but realised I could size down to 31. I requested an additional 1” at the opening (now about 9.5”) , to make sure they would easily cover any boots and never get caught up when I sit and then stand. I was a little afraid they would look too flared or bootcut but I’m very happy with the outcome. The Miner is a high rise true straight, so adding a bit at the bottom doesn’t alter the profile too much. Fantastic construction again. I love the soft yet insanely heavy pocket bags and reinforced back pockets. These were a six month wait, but luckily I have a second pair in the queue (heavy Japanese indigo) that should be ready in about a month.

How are you guys 31/32. I am a 33/34 which takes significant amount of effort and I am as lean as I can possibly be without being emaciated.

Genetics, mostly.

My kid drew this portrait of me and is is crazy accurate:
